By now we've heard how terrible the "romantic comedy" Valentine's Day movie really is, so go ahead and check that off your list of possible things to do tomorrow with your paramour. But we found another option that's so much better for fans of romance from the big screen.

WordTheatre, an organization that puts on literary salons with authors and actors, presents Hot Flicks: Love Scenes from the Silver Screen tomorrow night at M Bar. Actors from both stage and screen will perform staged readings of famous love scenes from movies--encompassing classics from Gone with the Wind to the more recent 500 Days of Summer.

Performers include: Edi Gathegi (Twilight, New Moon), Christopher Gorham (Ugly Betty, Harper's Island), Roma Maffia (Nip/Tuck, Disclosure), Bruce Davison ( X-Men, X-2).

We're willing to bet that if you surprise your date with something like this, you're chances of getting lucky afterward are infinitely better than going to see the watered-down version of Love Actually Valentine's Day at the cineplex.
